"ScholarlyCommons (http://repository.upenn.edu/) has served as the University of Pennsylvania’s open access institutional repository since 2004. The repository, hosted on Elsevier’s bepress Digital Commons software, allows for faculty, students, and Penn researchers to share scholarly materials publicly and without paywalls.
Fiscal Year 2018 (July 1, 2017 – June 30, 2018) was ScholarlyCommons’ strongest to date. The repository received its highest annual number of both downloads and uploads (full-text and abstracts combined), indicating the growing impact the repository has had not just on Penn scholars seeking a place to openly distribute their scholarship, but on users around the world seeking access to knowledge as well."
